Geeez what a fine automobile!
Alternator, coolant temp sensor, alternator wire harness, exhaust.
I love my Town Car. No other car in the world is as beautiful as this car. When you pull up in this car you get noticed. What a class act!
I bought this car for $550.00. It was filthy and missing some cosmetic parts! After much shampooing, compounding, ebaying and adding new thick white wall tires, this car looks like it just rolled off the line. I had 3 people make offers to buy this car from me, but I would never sell it.
To get this car running, I needed to replace the alternator. Thought I had it fixed until it broke down in the drive through line at Taco Bell... very embarrassing. Turns out a wire was damaged underneath the insulation of the alternator harness, and the car was only running on the battery.
I was also having trouble with the check engine light coming on a cold start. After learning how to get the code out of the OBD 1 system, I put a new coolant temp sensor in and the car now runs like a top. God bless the over the counter Haynes manual!!
I do notice a few things I cannot figure out yet. The A/C will go hot and the air blows out of the bottom on acceleration, and will go back to normal once cruising speed has been reached. Also, the transmission will shift hard around 45mph. I don't care if it breaks, I would install a new one in a second.
This car has just enough power. Nothing spectacular, but it will move it you need it to. My car does not want to go into a passing gear from 40-55 unless I really floor it... it just "lug lug lug's" until you reach speed. This car loves to cruise on the highway... just set the cruise, sit back and enjoy the ride.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
